In response, Root told Gabriel:”Don’t use it as an insult. You’ll find not anything wrong with being gay.”
It requires Gabriel demerit points into eight in a yearlong period.
West Indies sponsor England in a five-match ODI series starting on 20 February.
The comment by Gabriel wasn’t acquired and Root, 28, denied to explain day three what had been said afterwards play.
Gabriel was charged under article 2.13, which pertains to the personal abuse of a person, player support personnel, umpire or match referee throughout an global match.
